A Hamilton-based design and planning firm has expanded its footprint and bolstered its offerings with the acquisition of a Camden-based practice.
Spiezle Architectural Group Inc., an employee-owned firm, this week announced its acquisition of City Invincible Architecture, Interiors and Urban Design. The deal adds 13 employees to Spiezle’s team, bringing it to a total of 95, deepening its bench in the fields of architecture, planning, landscape architecture and interior design experience.
“We are very excited to add City Invincible to the Spiezle family of companies,” said Thomas Perrino, Spiezle’s CEO and president. “City Invincible’s expertise in urban planning and mixed use/multifamily not only adds to the diversity of our firm, but complements our current offerings and expands the number of market sectors we service.”
City Invincible, which will now be known as City Invincible, a Spiezle Company, operates from the historic State Bank of Camden building on Market Street and offers more than 30 years of project experience. With easy access to southern New Jersey and Center City Philadelphia, Spiezle says it will now be able to better serve its clients in concert with the City Invincible team.
“We are thrilled to have City Invincible join forces with Spiezle,” said Angelo Alberto, City Invincible’s founding principal. “Spiezle’s impressive breadth of markets will allow City Invincible to both diversify its offerings while continuing to improve upon its excellent client service.”
The move marks Spiezle’s second acquisition in its 65-year history, according to a news release. In 2016, the firm acquired GS Architects to extend its service portfolio while driving the firm’s mission of delivering thought leadership in the health care markets.
“We look forward to continuing our smart growth approach to diversity, both in client offerings and geographic locations, and City Invincible is an important piece of our progression into the future,” Perrino said.
